The early years of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills revolved around the tension and animosity between Kyle Richards and her sister Kim Richards. Kyle outed Kim as an alcoholic in the back of a limo during the season 1 finale. They also spent that whole first season reminding people that they’re Paris Hilton’s aunts, a fun fact that has lost its luster in recent years. Kyle sided with Lisa Rinna when she threw a glass at Kim during the cast trip in Amsterdam.
Then, Kim and Kathy Hilton took issue with Kyle for producing a
failed scripted series based on their family. Kyle has had many ups and downs with both Kim and Kathy over the years. Still, we have seen some small cameo appearances from Kathy throughout the years. Now, there are rumblings that Kathy will join the cast for Season 11.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans rejoiced this week when Teddi Mellencamp admitted to being fired. Finally! Some good news in 2020. Teddi never really found her footing on the show. Sure, she’s John Mellencamp’s shadow daughter and she took on Lisa Vanderpump in her second season. But everything else was zzzzzzzzzz. Who even wants to talk about it anymore?
Aside from Kyle Richards, Teddi was not close with any of the women on the show. Let’s be honest, Dorit Kemsley didn’t care if she left her waiting and Erika Jayne has probably never forgotten her “pretend amnesia” comments. So she’s not getting much of a send-off from anyone other than her one advocate.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has finally come to an end. It felt like forever. Primarily because we got yet another one-story season. We’ve had panty-gate. Last year it was puppy-gate. This year it was cl*t-gate. Next year who knows what we’ll get, but it better not be a mean-girl pile on. Yeah, I said it. Kyle Richards is the Regina George of RHOBH– only not as iconic. Erika Jayne is totally a Karen, Lisa Rinna isRegina’s desperate mom, and Teddi Mellencamp is Gretchen Weiners, the friend everyone overlooks. Thankfully though Teddi got fired. Have fun berating people on 500 calories a day!
Dorit Kemsley and Garcelle Beauvais were the only two non-mean girls this season. Garcelle is such a loyal friend she even stated that if Denise Richards left, she would too. Now that Denise has left the building after two seasons, is Garcelle going to follow?
It wasn’t exactly shocking when Denise Richards announced her exit from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. After a pretty easy first season, her second round was anything but enjoyable.
Kyle Richards made fun of her personal appearance, multiple times. Lisa Rinna turned her back on their friendship of over 20 years. Erika Jayne and Teddi Mellencamp argued with Denise’s husband Aaron Phypers to avoid talking about their own lives (beyond promoting their business ventures). Dorit Kemsley and Garcelle Beauvais had Denise’s back, but it wasn’t enough for her to stay around. And, you know what, who could blame her?
Denise Richards’ spot on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is still warm. What I mean by that is that fans still aren’t over her hasty departure. And by fans, I mean me, specifically. I can’t remember the last time a Housewife had such promise only to fly too close to the sun. Sigh.
And much like on the latest season of RHOBH, everyone is picking a side. Too bad only Garcelle Beauvais and Dorit Kemsley seem to be in Denise’s camp. It certainly wasn’t enough to keep Denise signed on. Hell, it was barely enough to get her through the season.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills viewers have watched the fall-out from alum Brandi Glanville’s claim that she had an alleged sexual tryst with Denise Richards. Brandi disclosed the information to Kyle Richards and Teddi Mellencamp. Kim Richards, Kyle’s sister and Brandi’s friend, already knew about the incident.
Somehow, the other RHOBH Housewives managed to insert themselves in the drama, which is ridiculous because it had nothing whatsoever to do with them. But here we are.
This is it folks. We’ve finally reached the end of the road for this season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The final part of the reunion also marks Denise Richards‘ last appearance as a housewife. The end of an era. It’s so that her friendship with Lisa Rinna ended up as a casualty in this reality war. The second half of the season was the ultimate did she or didn’t she regarding those Brandi Glanville hookup allegations.
Denise has used every tactic in the book this season to avoid taking accountability for her actions. She’s skipped events, made up fake family emergencies, and even used legal measures as a means of silence. Surely, someone who has nothing to hide wouldn’t jump through all of those hooks. Right? When you sign up to do a show like this, you know they’re going to show the good, the bad, and the hideous. This is Denise’s last stand. Let the fun begin!
We didn’t get to see a lot of Camille Grammer this season on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Under the neon pink glow of bitchiness, Kyle Richards welcomed Camille to her home for a fundraiser, but she was largely absent from communicating with the group. Probably because the majority of cast members know ‘ol Cammy has no shits to give and will poke the bear just for kicks.
This is why many viewers appreciated Camille’s time on RHOBH. She was the only one to try and get dirt on Dorit Kemsley’s sketchy wallet. She called Lisa Rinna a hypocrite for fueling the Brandi Glanville and Denise Richards
farce drama. And Camille never took any of Kyle’s crap. Now Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave is on deck. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the return of Camille 007.
